The National Committee for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR) has asked Netflix to stop streaming Bombay Begums alleging ‘inappropriate portrayal’ of children, reports state. The national body has asked the streamer to furnish a detailed report within 24 hours, failing which the commission will be constrained to initiate appropriate legal action.
As per reports, the NCPCR was acting on a complaint alleging the series normalises minors indulging in casual sex and drug abuse.
Created by Alankrita Shrivastava, Bombay Begums explores the lives of five ambitious women in Mumbai. The youngest character in the show, Shai (Aadhya Anand), is a teenager.
“Netflix should take extra precaution while streaming any content in respect of the children or for the children and shall also refrain themselves from getting into such things," the commission said in its notice, PTI reported.
